    7 magnitude earthquake hit southwest China


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     HanksDong told me, 'this morning we were disturbed. at the beginning it was slightly and I thought it was my roommates shaking the bed, but the shock became stronger soon , and it came to me that an earthquake happened. The vibration was so strong that everything on the shelves has slanted or dropped. In the fifth veranda, I saw many students get out of the dorm building and gathered in the ground, some even naked— only in briefs and slippers.'
